overlay div over iframe

I'm making a widget similar to the uservoice widgets, except I want the content of the page to be in an iFrame rather than the widget appear via javascript.
How can I have a full page (width/height 100%) iFrame with a div fixed to the left of the browser, an example (using javascript rather than css/html) is here: http://uservoice.com/demo

I want that widget to appear natively on the page, and the content be loaded via iFrame.

Any ideas? I can't make the iFrame fill the entire page, and also have the appear on top. I've played with z-indexes to no luck. Code example:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>

<style>
#widget {
left: 0px;
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
display: block;
z-index:100001;
width: 25px;
}
#content {
z-index:1;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="widget">
widget
</div>


<iframe frameborder="0" id="content" src="http://www.google.com/" width="100%" height="100%"></iframe>
</body>
</html>

Answer

If you're not loading cross domain then you could just load in using jquery ajax call http://docs.jquery.com/Ajax/load

$(document).ready(function () {
    $("#content").load("page.html");
});

and replace your iframe with

<div id="content"></div>
